....that's acceptable on this forum?

Don't make up a name now--use one you've actually posted on a coaster that seemed to 'fit' its appearance or style.

My VERY WORST was an RCT steel corkscrew competition entry named 'Grandma vs. the Aliens'. It was a duelling, booster launched multilooper with 16 total inversions (8 per side). And you guessed it - one queue was themed with the aliens and the other with the mine elements.

Second worst would have to be 'The Ike Turner Experience', given to a poor, innocent power-launched standup that was just sitting there, minding its own business. It seemed a good idea at the time. Maybe I should have just gone to bed.

Then there was the reverse-incline mini steelie in Tiny Park that simply climbed its lift hill, dropped all the way to level 1 and then pulled up steeply for a reverse trip. I named it "Go to (Heck) - The Ride". CoastaBaby caught me with that one and I had to blame it on the software itself -- oh my! Who did that?

Okay, your turn.

On a similar theme I had a vertical coaster called Hellraiser, which seemed quite appropriate as it went straight into the ground.
I haven't given many silly names - I reserve those for my flat rides. I put cat cars on my turnpike ride and called it ##### Parade but then realised that sounded too much like a top shelf magazine so I changed it to Kitty Capers. I also had a pink spaceshot ride I themed with sweets and called Sugar Rush.

I named a woodie Termite and no one would ride it!
Coincidence? I dunno?

I think that the worst name for a coaster is:
Roller Coaster 1
Roller Coaster 2
Roller Coaster 3
.............. .
.............. .

But the dumbest name that I give to one coaster is:

Super looser

Who wants to ride a coaster with this name?

Mexican Roller Coasters

: it! Coincidence? I dunno?

I called my Antique Car ride "Drive Like a Blue Hair" because the cars go so slow, a Power Tower was called "vomit Comet" because there was so much puke around it, and in honor of Terrance and Phillip from South Park, I called my slide the Assblaster.

It's amazing how many silly names you can come up with!

I like to call my shops daft things. I've had Rat Burger and Dog Burger, Pavement Pizza, Mental Floss and stuff like that.

I called a coaster (a vertical coaster) Certain Death but it was surprisingly popular!

Oh, well if we're talking about naming other items there's always my favorite restrooms Leak Of Fear and The Dump Site.
